Some weeks just call for soup. On Memorial Day I woke up with a scratchy throat. As the day wore on I started to feel achey and feverish, but I convinced myself it was allergies.I plowed through the next couple of days, feeling progressively worse. On Wednesday my throat was so sore I could barely stand to swallow my own spit.

It turned out to be my first case of strep throat since I have been out of elementary school, and it hit me hard. The worst part about being sick is the total lack of energy or motivation to do ANYTHING other than laying on the couch and waging the internal debate of whether or not you are really dying.

The biggest lesson I learned from being sick last week is that I should make a grocery store run the moment I start feeling under the weather, because we spent most of the week scrounging for meals that we could throw together that wouldn’t make my sore throat even angrier.

Thankfully I had some vegan broth base in the cupboard, so I was able to concoct several soups that packed a nutritional punch, but were quick and easy to throw together.

I usually use dry beans, but I try to keep a few cans in the cupboard for instances like this when I don’t have time, or the energy, to cook the beans from scratch. The Eden Organic brand is definitely a little spendy, but it’s one of the only canned brands that is BPA free. I LOVE this vegan broth base. It is so much cheaper than buying vegetable broth, and it tastes great.

I had some leftover baguette from my housewarming party last weekend, which was a perfect side for soup. I am on the mend and feeling better now, but I think this soup is going to definitely make it into the recipe rotation for a quick, easy meal.
